Rafa will bring Frank Malouda to replace Kewell next season.

To those of you saying Ronaldo will leave Man Utd, get real. he wants to beoome a legend at OT and is well on his way in fact. he also does not want to play second fiddle to the likes of Ronaldino and Messi at Barca or link up with RVN in Madrid. Another reason he won't be going to Spain: stability, Madrid lack any comprehension of the word w/ the revolving doors of coaches there, it is hard to see where the club is going and at Barca, talk of Rijkard (speling) going back to Milan. talk of him going anywhere is from the boardroom, not the managers. Ultimately it is what they want that decides think. He will learn a ton from Fergie and would be mutually beneficial to both He will stay at Man Utd for the next 2-3 seasons and then re-evaluate when it comes time for a contract extension. With regards to Man Utd's transfer situtatoin, Hamburg will be the team to raid this summer, should they be relegated, with the likes of Kompany, deJong, van der Vaart all available at cut-rate prices and replacements for the aging stars. Kompany is young enough to adapt to play RD for neville, deJong in the holding midfield role and van der Vaart to replace Scholes. These players would all be available for 5-7 million GBP. The likes of Huntleear (spelling) Torres, Bale, Nani, Mountinho, Hargreaves, and possible even Robben to replace Giggs will all be associated with the Red Devils. Clearouts will be Silvestre, Fletcher, Smith, Larsson (loan return), Richardson, Howard (loan made pernament) and look for the likes of Pique, Evans, Rossi, Foster and Bardsley to once again to be loaned out to top level clubs.

How do I know this? I ran into Tommy Smyth (ESPN Soccernet. com commentator) while he was in NY last weekend as he was hosting an event.

Danny Shittu is set to sign for Sheffield United at the end of the season if Warnock's side remain in the Premiership and Watford go down. United will pay £3. 5 million for the ex-QPR defender.

Luton Town defender Leon Barnett will join Reading for £3 million.


Liverpool are set to splash the cash by signing David Villa, Van Der Vaart, Torres, Lennon and Micah Richards yoy .

Lfc rumour

1st of all how many people want to keep going on about the takeover and the ridiculous amount of money people think Liverpool will spend, Rafa is clever and not a money waster, he would never spend 30m on a 30 year old i.e thierry Henry.

Javier Saviola is now a target for Chelsea who will offer £7 million in the summer for the Argentine striker. Expect Inter Milan and Arsenal to also lodge bids.


Just to Clarify a few things that I know -not just heard.

1st: Man Utd have been after Tim Cahill for a while now - have put forward many offers (i think the highest was 13mill) but Everton have always flatly refused. Quite simply they do not want to sell him as they view him as an integral part of their team - more so than Rooney was.

2nd: Guus has not agreed to take over Chelsea, depsite what people say on this site. He may still do so in the summer, but after speaking with him yesterday, it looks unlikely.

and finally to those rumours about Henry going to Liverpool. It is just fantasy. I don't know Henry or anyone at Arsenal, but if he turned down Barcelona, why on earth would he go to a team like Liverpool just 6/ 12 months later. Quite simply, it aren't going to happen!

Following the signing of Ronaldo from Real Madrid, AC Milan boss Carlo Ancelotti has decided to allow Ricardo Oliveira to return to La Liga in the summer. The former Real Betis and Valencia striker has struggled to replace Andriy Shevchenko since joining last July, and is apparently eager to return to Spain. Ronaldo will become the partner for Alberto Gilardino and Oliveira won't want to be a bench warmer, so a move back to La Liga seems likely. Valencia could be interested in buying him back, while surprisingly Barcelona might make a bid with Eidur GudJohnsen not performing since his switch to Camp Nou.

There is a chance that Bastian Schweinsteiger will join Liverpool altough it is more likely that Benitez will pounce for Holland star Rafael Van Der Vaart. Expect him to make the DOUBLE dutch signing of Van Der Vaart and Huntelaar in the summer to add to the existing Dutchman - Kuyt. Expect him to get rid of Zenden with Mascherano winning his place.


Chelsea to let makelele go, and they will hijack manure's bid for Hargreaves, in a swap deal with Robben

Rafa Benitez 'If money wasn't an option I would sign Fernando Torres' .

The rumours of Keane going to Celtic arr true! the spl might be a low league but Celtic r 1 of the best in britain why would Keane want to go to Villa Fulham or Everton that to me is a step down Celtic arr a lot bigger and better than these 3 teams and plus Keane is a lifelong Celtic fan! Transfers for Celtic in the summer are-


robbie Keane - Tottenham

tymoshuk- shaktar

next years Celtic team will be-



cb-pressley or caldwell







cf-vennegoor of hesselink




pressley or caldwell




Brian Laws is hoping to tie up the loan signing of either Rahdi Jaidi from Birmingham, or Chris Perry from WBA.

He is hoping to have the loan man in time to play for Wednesday against Burnley.

C Ronaldo wants to go to Spain, he will go. it will cost a lot of money but he will end up at Barca becuase either Messi will join Inter or ROnaldiniho will join Milan or Chelsea. If Ronnie joins Milan expect Kaka to move on to Chelsea or perhaps Real Madrid. If Ronnie joints Chelsea expect Lampard and a whole bundle of cash to go the other way (perhaps with Robben instead of a boat full of twenties) . If Real are beaten to the signing of C Ronaldo by Barca expect them to go for Kaka (yet again) but if Ronaldinho joins Chelsea Milan won't sell so Madrid will ask Atletico about Aguero. Atletico will not sell their up and coming superstar to their bitter city rivals so the great merry-go-round of madrid transfer madness will turn to Robben, who will only join Madrid if he doesn't move to Barcelona as part of the deal that takes Ronaldiniho to Chelsea. hope that's clear for you Wast.

Richard Money sniffing around Mark Davies from The Dingles and approaching Birmingham for Neil Kilkenny on loan. Scott Dann subject of serious interest from Aston Villa.

And to person who said "Expect youth system to exceed Arsenals amazing system within 3 years, the stadium to be outstanding and the football to match (fingers crossed) " Don't be silly, took Arsene Wenger 7 years to build this youth system, not 3.

Hull city afc are very close to signing 2 players on loan Phil Brown confirmed that they're in talks with

a premiership club and a championship club 1 is rumored to be a centre mid and the other could be a striker cos parkin n windass are fat rubbish

Football Icon winner Sam Hurrell is set to join League 2 outfit MK Dons in early March until the end of the season.


Curtis Davies does not support Man United you complete cretin. He supports Spurs. I'm not a Spurs fan, its just that these nonsense rumours drive me mad.

he was born and raised in London, and while yes this would suggest he is a man you fan, he is a Spurs fan and famous for it. he applied there when he was released as a trainee but they said no, before he went to Luton.

Mark Viduka is likely to join Everton in the summer from Middlesbrough as James Beattie is set to head for Blackburn.


Liverpool FC 'rumours'.

Rafa Benitez has been promised that cash will be made available for the players he needs for the team - there is no transfer budget as such (it's a case of "tell us who you want and you can have them") . There will be no mass buying or clear out as the team has good foundations but needs a few additions. David Villa IS a target as Rafa has been interested in signing him since he played for Real Zaragoza. Reina is not part of any deal. Mascherano will sign a permanent deal in the summer if he impresses during his loan spell. Daniel Alves, Simao Sabrosa and Bastian Schweinsteiger are all targets. Rafa will look to buy young players for the future as well. Players reported to be leaving are, Dudek, Fowler (will take a coaching role at Melwood), Hyypia, Zenden and some youth players (loans) .

The situation at Manchester City between the board and manager stuart pearce is getting worse by the day ! Pearce, s days are numberd expect him to leave the club by mutual agreement very soon and take the England U21 on a full time basis !

A small clarification form my post yesterday, I meant that two players staying at their clubs are Terry Henry. I meant Terry and Henry, not some version of Thierry Henry, just forgot a comma. Oh, and Mourinho isn't a player either in case someone was ready to jump on that.

My friend who lives in Newcastle works for the local rumours paper 'The Chronicle' and he knows Alan Oliver the sports writer. He has been told by him that Newcastle will finally be taken over in the Summer by the Polygon Group, who are still very much interested in buying the club despite other media speculation stating that they have withdrawn from the race. Money will be made available and be sure Newcastle will move for Raul of Real Madrid with Martins Chelsea bound, Anton Ferdinand (which was a done deal in the transfer window and would have went through had the Upson deal been concluded earlier), Salomon René Olembé-Olembé of Marseille and also Alex of PSV, who is keen to try himself in the premiership (expect luque to move in other direction
